Products / Consumer Cameras

Delivering smart cameras to the masses.

Ambarella has a rich history of turning cutting-edge processors into best-selling, mass-market products. As consumer trends have shifted over time, our commitment to quality has never wavered, starting with HD and UHD video resolutions, low-power architectural designs, industry-leading AVC/HEVC encoding, and must-have video features such as electronic image stabilization (EIS), and continuing with the latest in computer vision processing. Our chips enable the development of affordable consumer devices—drones, wearables, aftermarket dash-cams, and more—with high-resolution video capabilities, efficient compression, low-power operation, and onboard smart features such as intelligent editing and person-of-interest tracking.
